Went to find a restaurant previously occupying the pace now filled by Taste of India. Was disappointed but decided to try TOI out. The dining experience was a big surprise. Large menu, imported Indian beer, atmosphere not too overdone. The food was very tasty and it can be prepared any way you like it: Bland, Hot, Very Hot and India Hot! I had mine done Very Hot but the spice did not overpower the rich flavor. My wife and I ordered different entrees but both were fantastic. We ate every morsel, every grain of rice and there was not a drop of sauce left. The restaurant was fairly empty at about 6:00 on a Saturday night but quickly filled to capacity within an hour. Several tables had 8 or more diners. The clientele included several Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi and Middle Eastern diners but generally was diverse. Bring the family because they seem to like well-behaved children. The wait staff was attentive and they were ready to describe dishes and make recommendations. Overall this was a pleasant dining experience and we would go back again.

Went with 3 friends for a birthday treat. The waiter was very friendly and chatty until he found out we were not going to order alcohol. The demeanor changed immediately. We shared a very good appetizer sampler and then the main dishes arrived. All had good flavor but mostly sauce and not much meat. The lamb was bit tough but the 2 chicken dishes were moist and tender. The restaurant is clean but tables are very close together. The fake flowers on the tables are way tacky!

With the reviews - we were very eager to check out a good Indian restaurant in the area. We went for the lunch buffet last Sunday and we must disagree with the reviews. Maybe a different cook in attendance? Sorry but we will not be back - food was bland and the waiters were inattentive. We were charged for a cup of hot water? No no! when you want to establish yourself in the area - that is not the way to treat new customers. And the gentleman at the cash register gleefully looked at us - as if we were from outer space or something...
